Ashley & Tom’s Stunning Cranberry Bog Wedding

Ashley and Tom’s wedding day started out as the previous Saturday had – rainy and cold. I will admit I was a bit bummed, as we had so many amazing spots picked out for wedding day portraits – but as mother nature does what mother nature wants, I knew we would make it work no matter what. And on it rained! Thank goodness for umbrellas.

I started my day with Ashley, her mother and her bridal party at the salon. It’s always so much fun for me to start so early in the getting-ready portion of the day. It’s always some of my favorite moments – and I had a blast getting to know her friends and family as the ladies finished beautifying. We headed to her parent’s lovely home after the salon where the girls all got ready and Ashley was able to open up some very special and incredibly thoughtful gifts from her soon-to-be husband (nicely done, Tom!)

From there, a gorgeous church ceremony would follow. The bridal party all hurried from the limo to the church under umbrellas, careful not to step in puddles and dashing inside for the ceremony to begin. I got to spend a few minutes with Tom and his best man prior to everything getting started and he was the epitome of ready – excited and looking so handsome! Everyone was in good spirits despite the weather.

The ceremony was absolutely beautiful and the church itself was stunning. But, what happened after the ceremony was truly the icing on the cake. As the doors were opened for the bride and groom to exit the church, the rain had vanished. A bit overcast and cool, but dry and welcoming. The rapid change was incredible! We were able to take some beautiful photos in front of the church before heading to the reception site for more photos and getting ready for the big party to begin.

With the rain in the past, Ashley and Tom were game to sneak over to the cranberry bog nearby and ohmygoodness – it was a photographer’s dream! The colors! The light! These two gorgeous (married!) people! There is a very real chance multiple happy dances ensued! It was absolutely unreal and I am still so excited about the location! One of my favorites from the entire wedding season!

The reception that followed was one big party! Ashley and Tom’s family and friends knew how to get down on the dance floor and enjoyed delicious food, excellent music and a fun party atmosphere that went on long into the night. The details were all so classy and personal and the whole reception looked like a dream.

It was the perfect day – rain and shine – and I am so honored we got to be a part of it! Ashley and Tom, thank you so much for including us in your amazing day! I can’t wait for you to see all your photos!!
